"Victor-Albert Bouffort was an aeronautics engineer who took it upon himself to design and build some pretty crazy cars in the years after WWII. The first was this magnificent streamlined three-wheeler based on a Citroen Traction-Avant."

We love a CitroŽn challenge!

For today’s feature article, we have an assortment of three images containing an unusual three-wheel vehicle, an early truck being put through its paces, and a distinctive rear axle design.

We begin with the stylish French trike in the lead image is parked on a street covered with curved paving bricks in the city of Paris, France. The vehicle is wearing “Paris Chic” bodywork of the tear drop type usually fitted to pre or postwar Talbot-Lago or Delage chassis’ by famed French coachbuilder Jacques Saoutchik; note the gullwing doors.

The photograph was taken by Moreau Fabcdx and published in the Automotive Industries, May 15, 1947, issue here in the States. The unknown writer described it in this way; “The seat resembles that in a cockpit of an airplane and the door is one-piece which lifts up when the driver enters. It has three wheels and an 11-horsepower engine. Its top speed is about 90-miles per hour.”
